Balanzza's new portable, digital luggage scale just might keep Santa from over-packing this holiday season. Many a traveler has arrived at the airline ticket counter only to learn their bags are too heavy. Paying overweight baggage fees is never a pleasant way to start a trip.
The Balanzza scale straps on to your luggage. In three easy steps you get a digital read-out of your bag's weight in pounds or kilograms. All you do is lift, wait for the beep, put the bag down and read the display. The scale reads up to 100 pounds/44 kg. It costs less than $25.
